No-Sweat Summer Makeup: Melt-free makeup strategies for warm, humid weather

How to keep your makeup intact?  There are a few tricks that pro makeup artists use to ensure long-lasting makeup even under the most extreme temperatures.

Step one, use a mattifying product to prevent the skin from looking shiny.  Add an oil-free moisturizer and SPF.  Make sure to use a primer before applying your foundation.  For oil-prone skin, try this one.  If you have normal or dry skin, use a regular silicon primer. For your daily foundation, try a light, silicone-based foundation; silicone is melt-proof and water resistant.  Since the silicone makeup won’t move, the face will not require any set powder, and the skin will retain its dewy glow. 

As for the eye makeup, we all know about waterproof mascaras.  However, now waterproof eyeliners are available as well; several liner pencils contain a silicone-derivative so that the liner won’t fade.

If there is makeup added to the eyebrows, make sure to use a cream based product rather than powder; such as Anastasia Dipbrow.

An alcohol-based setting liquid should be lightly applied over the brow makeup to ensure longevity.

For the lips, a lip pencil that contains a silicone-derivative, as well as a highly pigmented lip product will ensure that the lips will stay intact throughout the hot day.
